Needed: PRAYER.

Hey, Everybody! We are super excited about this year of ministry both on the road and off the road but it occurred to me in Phoenix two weeks ago that it might be time to ask you prayer warriors to really press in if you’re willing.  I know your plates are all full just like ours are. I also know that your intercessory list is probably a mile long. None of us can cover everything but, if God makes room on those knees of yours for our Living Proof staff and the ministry He’s assigned to us, and for my family and me, we would try not to let a single second of it go to waste. We would actively receive with gratitude and humility and with much praise to God for you.

Things have really heated up around here. We were blessed out of our minds to have a fresh sense of God’s presence in Phoenix at our last LPL but, boy, did we ever have some obstacles. It truly was uncanny and caused us to realize that we can’t just approach the coming year like the previous year. At our last LPL, many of us on the team got sick almost instantly upon arriving. It’s one of the few times in all these years that I taught so hoarse that I was afraid I’d lose my voice completely before the event was over. Just so you’ll know how unusual that was, I literally have not been to the doctor in over three years for any kind of sickness. God has really blessed me in this season will wellness but my experience in Phoenix reminded me not to take that for granted. One of our praise members ended up in the emergency room twice that weekend. It was just nuts. Add to that the warfare and we were truly in the hornet’s nest. We LOVED the group! They were fantastic and God was gloriously faithful but He called us to vividly fight for the victory at that event.

My beloved family and I could also use some added prayer right now. Please know that God is showing such faithfulness to us and revealing Himself in multiple ways. He reminds us continually that He is committed to us. Where would we be if He were not?? I don’t want anyone worrying. I just want to make sure I’ve humbled myself and asked for a solid prayer covering. As James 4:2 says, we have not because we ask not. The first thing on the prayer docket this week is the Greensboro, North Carolina Living Proof Live. We are ecstatic to be heading there and ask that you request such a revelation of Christ’s presence and power among us that we never forget it. Two weeks later we will be in Eugene, Oregon for Living Proof Live and we can hardly wait. I have a feeling Jesus has something special for us there. In mid-May I have the LifeWay taping for the next Bible study series (won’t be on the shelves for a year though!) and trust me when I tell you that we will be getting VERY specific with you about prayer mobilization for that week. For now, just get that on your radar. We will be desperate for your prayers and very dependent upon them.

I love you so much that I always feel a little reluctant to ask something more of you. You are the most giving, serving community I’ve ever experienced. I do not take one moment of your time for granted. Every time a sister tells me that she prays often for me, I am moved to the core. Faith-driven intercession takes effort. You could give us no greater gift. We deeply want to please God and have pure hearts and clear minds and servant-attitudes. And above all else for me personally, pray that I will love Jesus more than anything in this entire world. Pray the same for my whole family and for this ministry staff as a whole. Pray that for Travis Cottrell, my co-laborer and spiritual son. When you don’t know exactly how to direct your prayers for any of us, PRAY THAT! All else hinges on that one thing. We want to love Jesus.We NEED to love Jesus. Loving Him is the only thing that cleanses our hearts and makes them whole enough to love others well.

Thank you, dear sisters. You are so dear to me.

Sisters, in closing, I’d be so honored to pray for each one of you. I hope you’ll enter into it individually and take it personally. It is heartfelt.

My faithful, most holy Father and my God,

With tremendous love I lift my sister to you. You know what stirs in her heart, what awakens her at night, what causes her to shudder, and what seeks to devour her. You have seen her in the secret place and you know her longings and her questions and her dreams and her hopes. You know the very place that doubt seeks to swallow her and deceit desires to seed in her. Spring her eyes open to cleansing, delivering Truth. Minister to her in such a personal way throughout the coming days that she is floored once again by Your all-knowingness and complete attentiveness. Sprout signs of harvest in a field where she has sown so faithfully and seen so little. Help her to see that her labor is not in vain. Soak the fleece in such a way that she’ll know You are with her.  Send someone to encourage her in such a specific area that she’ll know You alone could have prompted it.

Grant her a heart to love You with an abounding affection that could only be supernatural and cause her to feel her heart teeming with love toward someone who is loveless toward her. Protect her heart and heal her mind where it may be bent or twisted. Take all shame off of her and cast out her self-loathing once and for all and lift her chin to see her redemption drawing near. Give her faith enough to believe that she has truly been forgiven and that You who began a good work in her will most assuredly complete it. Put a new relationship in her life that brings much joy to her in You and revives her faith-walk and makes her laugh. Healthy friendships, Lord! Help her to finally release a relationship that You have clearly brought to an end and to do so without resentment or bitterness, trusting You entirely with the future. Be radiant upon her face. Tell her forthrightly how lovely she is to You and how significant. Quiet that part of her that seeks to perform for acceptance. Give her joy in a more honest version of herself. Reveal Your gorgeous self to her, Lord Jesus. Let every false Christ in her life bow to the One and Only True so that she can see it is You. Make every competing voice hush to Yours.

In Your beautiful, saving, redeeming Name, Jesus, I bring these earnest requests.

    Praying right now for you all of you as you seek to know Him and make Him known. What a joy it is to intercede on behalf of our sisters & brothers in Christ and you can know that I will be praying for all that you mentioned.

    Thank you for the heartfelt prayer for all of us Siestas as well. I feel amazed at the prayer requests you brought forth because many {if not all} of them are very specifically on my heart right now. Perhaps I am not as unique or alone in my needs as I sometimes feel I am! May our gracious Lord bring forth beauty where the enemy seeks to destroy and may us girls give HIM praise for His healing hand in our lives.

    Thank you for that beautiful prayer. Several lines jumped out at me but this is the one I needed the most: “Sprout signs of harvest in a field where she has sown so faithfully and seen so little. Help her to see that her labor is not in vain.” This mother of 2 teen boys needed that word of encouragement and hope that prayer is answered on my behalf even today!

    Will continue to be praying for you and your ministry. Eager to know what the new Bible study topic will be (may have missed that somewhere.) and wishing it would be on the shelves by fall Bible study time but know that good things take time!

    Karen Del Tatto says:

    Your heartfelt prayer came to me at the most amazing time as I just a few hours ago found out something that is causing me much anxiety. Turning to the Lord in my worship time today for comfort and sterngth your words rung in my ears, “The Lord will accomplish all that concerns me” which has been a life transforming verse for me at this stage of my life. Still, there are times like today where I am taken aback with anxiety and must cling to the verse even more. Your prayer came to me at just the moment I needed to see it. It brought me incredible comfort and peace. I have printed it off and will read it often as encouragement to myself and to lift up others in prayer. The Lord has used you in so many ways to minister to me. I give God all Glory and Honor for you His servant, and will pray for you and your team.

    I lift of the LPL team to you, and pray that they will feel your presence ever so close to them. We know that Satan is continually trying to steal, kill, and destroy, but Father you are Greater, Stronger and Mightier than the enemy in this world. I pray that you heal anyone on the LPL team that is sick, and help them to be stronger than ever for their upcoming conferences.

    I pray that you will do above all than we could ever imagine or think at the conferences, and that your Power may rest on Beth as she speaks, as well as Travis as he leads people to the throne of grace through worship. Let the enemy flee from the team, and do wonderful things in and through each of them. Be with Beth’s family and any trials they may be encountering at this time. Help them to continually draw near to you in time of need. And above all, help them each to fall more and more in love with you everyday.

    I was at the LPL Event in Phoenix and knew that Beth was struggling with her voice. I recently found out that there was a woman in her 50’s that was in the audience and during one of the worship times, she suffered an aneurysm and died 2 days later. I’m not sure whether Beth was aware of that. We must ALWAYS love Jesus and ALWAYS be ready!

    Praying for you Beth along with your family and the whole LPM team! You are well-loved and a beloved example of a woman striving after Jesus, loving Him and loving others with sincere affection. I have been so blessed by you over the years and am honored to lift you all up. Thank you for that beautiful prayer, I take it personally, cherish it and believe God for all of it!!

    I will be praying fervently for you, your entire ministry team, and your precious family. May you feel each prayer and be quickened by the Holy Spirit to fulfill the beautiful ministry Christ has blessed you with. Though the enemy tries to attack you WILL be lifted up. George MacDonald said, “Afflictions are but the shadows of God’s wings.” You,my dear sister, will soar on wings like eagles. God bless you!

    Sarah Tolson says:

    Well if that prayer didn’t bring me to hot, relieving, sweet tears, I don’t know what would. Hurts so good.

    I just prayed for you all, and will continue to do so. Thank Jesus for your ministry.

    Will be lifting you all up to our sweet Lord in prayer now and in the coming weeks! I also Dover prayer from all my siestas as well.

    In 12 days my precious sister,Cari, will enter the hospital for a stem cell transplant after 8 long months of chemo. She has a devastating cancer called multiple myeloma and it has no cure. According to man… I know that our God is faithful and mighty and powerful and I am claiming the victory in her life that He has shown me in my prayer time with Him. She needs much prayer as the process leading up to getting her new cells is hard. Thank you all so much!!

      Beth…I am praying for your sister, Cari. My doctors found something at my checkup a year ago that they thought was this very same thing. After further testing, I am fine. I wish Cari was too…but GOD IS FAITHFUL. Can I claim the victory for her right along with you? My prayers are with you for her healing and His grace in the process. Bless you both!

    I was at the Phoenix Living Proof event. It was amazing and life changing. I sat in the front row…did you see me? I am still wearing my band…3 weeks baby! As I sit here and read your blog, I am in awe of the Lord and the work he has been doing. The very things you spoke about, are the very same thing the Lord has been working in/on me. I am steppin up the truth that I am marked for Jesus and his signature is on me! But boy do I see satan stretchin back the bow at me and at you and many others. I dedicated in my heart that Saturday there to pray for you. I have been. I think you need to make LPM knee pads! It will be a hit! I want to be different Beth. I too like you want to be in love with Jesus more and more and more…I wanna be a Maryolive! I want the sparkle of Jesus in my eyes. His face to shine upon me. I will continue to pray for you and your team….you are doing POWERFUL things for the kingdom….LOVE YOU BETH MOORE…YOU ROCK!

    Thank you Beth! I will be it the Greensboro event and I have invited my sister in law. Oh how she needs Jesus healing. She has struggled with depression and addiction. She has not told me yes or no about going on Friday. So I believe the door is still open. I just know she would find such a hope in Jesus if she came to the event. Things are starting to turn around in her life but I feel like she is trying to do it on her own. I wonder if the church has let her down at some point. Even if she doesn’t go, there has been an openness and a willing to connect with me. I dearly love her and it breaks my heart to see when she struggles. Please pray for her to decide to go and to be blessed by your teaching of God’s love.

    the prayer I just read, from you (Beth) to us… at the exact time needed… so badly needed. I rarely -RARELY- visit this site but I saw something on Facebook that led me to click on it. I believe it was in order for me to read that prayer.
    I will pray for LP and for you, Beth. Thank you…

    Phyllis says:

    Dearest Beth,
    THANK YOU FOR THE PRAYER OVER US/ME TODAY. It was just what I needed to encourage this heart of mine. Last Saturday I pulled out your book Praying God’s Word as I really felt like I needed a refresher course in prayer. When ever I read a book by a Christian author I always include her (or him) in my prayers. So it is a real prividge to pray for everyone at LPM including Travis and his team as well as the families represented by each. We need each other. love and prayers Phyllis from Canada where it is still cold with lots of snow!

    Got you covered! Please don’t ever hesitate to ask for additional prayer. It’s a privilege to those of us on your prayer team. And personally speaking, this post made me cry… your prayer touched me so specifically. Love this, “Soak the fleece in such a way that she’ll know You are with her.” Oh, Beth, I’m shaking in my boots but at the same time excited to have an opportunity to speak at a conference in Tempe, AZ next weekend, and in Tampa, FL in May. I would so covet and appreciate any and all prayer. Thank you for pouring into me for soooo many years. By God’s grace, and your discipleship, I have a burning passion to share Him and His saving grace! Love you so! (now bawling)

    Beth – I’ve been so blessed by your prayers for me over the years (they have always felt specific – never generic) whether in Bible Study or on a DVD. I am most honored to approach the throne of grace on your behalf. Thank you for inviting us to “stand in the GAP” for you!

    I am more than honored to pray for you, the LPL team, and your families. God has blessed me mightily through your teaching.

    What a precious prayer over me/us. I desperately needed this, as my sweet 87-year old mom fell Monday and had to have emergency surgery for a partial hip replacement.

    May God pour His richest blessings over you all.
